I'm posting because I wrote a novel this year (about 130 pages) and am interested in getting it published but I have no idea where to start. I have never tried to get anything published before. I'm thinking that the best approach is to send it to as many publishing companies as I can. But if this is not the best approach, can someone tell me where I should start? I'm also not sure what kind of letter I should send with it (what info. should and should not be included, etc) or how long of an excerpt I should include. I'm thinking about 20 pages but am not sure.
If anyone can give me ANY advice about publishing, either in relation to what I've mentioned about or any other advice that you may have from your own experiences or elsewhere, it would be much appreciated. Please just leave a comment. Thanks! :)
